Center for Photographic Art

The Center for Photographic Art is a non-profit organization that presents major international photographic exhibitions throughout the year, as well as educational workshops and lectures. The organization endeavors to promote a better understanding and awareness of many different approaches to the photographic medium.

CPA is celebrating over 30 years of fine art photography exhibitions in the same gallery, which was originally established as the Friends of Photography by Ansel Adams, Edward Weston and other classic artists.

Sunset Center Office

The Sunset Center is a community gathering place, where citizens of the region meet to enjoy the full spectrum of performing arts, view visual-arts exhibits, exchange ideas, learn, and attend organization meetings and educational events. The Center is also home to some of the region’s leading performing-arts organizations, visual and arts service organizations, and volunteer groups.

Artists, local citizens and regional neighbors come together to share talents, ideas and enjoyment of one another in a carefully maintained, state-of-the-art historic facility, governed in a fiscally prudent manner that responds to the dynamic environment of the region.
